Hi All, great news a lung transplant is not on the agenda at the moment between the Chest Consultant and the RA Consultant they are going to try and concentrate on slowing down the RA affecting my lungs with various drugs, They were so impressed with mine and Fran.s effort improving my mobility and exercises to gain some lung space and they have encouraged me to carry on with a good diet plan, plenty exercise and that's all we can do for the moment. Just waiting on my son Mark coming with a couple of bottles of wine, And seeing Fran's face when she heard that the transplant was not happening just now made me even happier if that's possible. mattcass
